Israel provided an interesting viewpoint from a scientific perspective, which is how “normalizing” groups is hard to do in practice. My current viewpoint is that individualization is more than creating “equal playing field”, or making sure everyone is training at similar individual potential, but rather making sure one is doing what it takes to reach his full potential while avoiding the downsides.
Israel mentioned an interesting an interesting study in the podcast on individualisation regarding improved accuracy and strength of posterior shoulder. Sorry if I have missed the reference but would it be possible to get it please?
Hi Ian, great question. Ever since reading your comment I spent a fair bit of time searching for that reference but can’t seem to find it. I will post here once I do. In the meantime, here is a paper that discuses the role of co-contraction in movement accuracy. The paper I mentioned was on somewhat of similar topic.
